second amendment rights and the second amendment rights of our law-abiding law-ag citizens. we have seen the newtown parents here in washington bravely telling their stories. they deserve better than this body turning their backs on them. the families of aurora deserve better than this body turning their backs on them. the families of more than 30 people who die every single day at the hands of gun violence deserve more from this body. my friends, it is simply time to act. today is the day for this body to show the american people that their voices matter. that when 90% of americans demand us to expand background checks, that we can deliver. we should be able to agree today that we no longer need military-style weapons and ammunition clips on our streets. and we should be able to agree today that it's time to crack down on the illegal handguns being trafficked in our streets into the hands of criminals. four years ago, i met the parents of naisha pryor yard. naisha was a beautiful 17-year-old honor student killed in the prime of her life by an illegal handgun when she was just spending t
of american exceptionalism and another component is free capitalism and the rule of law. it says in our constitution, the constitution itself is the supreme law of the land. and we must abide by the consfution, the language in it. and the language in the constitution isn't something that can be redefined away from us, but instead, mr. speaker, it is a written contract, it's a contract from the generations that ratified the constitution and the subsequent amendments to the succeeding generations. our charge is to preserve, defend and protect the constitution of the united states and if we find that the wisdom of our predecessors didn't foresee circumstances in the current era we are, we have to defend always the language of the constitution and the understanding of the meaning of that language at the time of ratification, but instead have enough courage to amend the tools and use the constitution. the supreme law of the land. the rule of law is an essential pillar of american exceptionalism. without it, we wouldn't have a reason to uphold the constitution. and i often speak to groups of

tragedy to a law office in san francisco in 1993. where a crazed gunman -- i remember his name but i won't say it -- with an assault weapon killed eight people and wounded six. one of those people was a brave warrior who threw his body over the body of his wife, sacrificing his own life to save hers. now, that young man was one of my son's best friends, and i know personally how these horrific and senseless tragedies live on with the survivors. the parents, the spouses, the children, the family and the friends. it changes their lives and it pierces their hearts forever. so i've told you a couple of stories about california, but let me say this. let's look at what's happened across this nation since sandy hook. in the 120 days since sandy hook, more than 2,200 americans have been killed by gun violence. hardly anyplace was spared. now, we know there are many, many firearms in america. 300 million firearms in the united states. if you were to divide that up, that would be one gun per person. of course, there are many people who just have many, many guns. now, this is a 50% increase in the

number for a civilization. stronger gun laws can make a difference. calling in.you for this is the front page of " the washington times." michael is from rockville center, new york. caller: the reason this legislation failed is not only would it have not prevented the terrible tragedy that occurred in connecticut but also the tragedy in colorado. abroad is lacking because it would appear both parties have used this issue to raise money and at the same time not really address it responsibly. i think most americans are on to the fact that would appear you bringin -- that what you in personalities like cabby gifford or families from connecticut, at the end of the day we are failing to address the substantive problems that are far more concern to americans. are you a gun owner? caller: i am not. i would tell you from my own experience i am very fortunate. i know for a fact that a couple of my neighbors are law enforcement officials that carry guns. when we experienced the black hats here ends tropical storm standee there was a sense -- the black out here and tropical storm sandy there was a

these photos of what remains of a pressure cooker which was used as the delivery device for the explosives. law enforcement sources tell nbc news the bombs were built to act like homemade ieds. sources tell nbc news the bombs included a battery pack and "the boston globe" reports investigators recovered a part of a circuit board at the scene. the bombs were packed with scha shrapnel. the bomb was not capable of creating a massive blast. instead, its main purpose was to maim and injure. photos obtained by whdh in boston showed the area where the bomb was left moments before and moments after the detonation. the fbi is looking at these photos and others like them for clues as to who placed the bombs and when. now there is precedent for devices like these. in 2004, the fbi sent out a memo on the use of homemade pressure cooker bombs. al qaeda's online magazine gave instructions for making them just last month and in the 2010 attempted attack on times square, one of the devices found included a pressure cooker and 125 firecrackers. meanwhile, the search of an apartment belonging to a foreign studen
,ming. mr. presiden this amendment protects the privacy and sety of law-abiding gun owners. when government officials release gun ownership information it puts many lives at risk. this includes the lives of lawful gun owners, the lived of law enforcement and the lives of ctheic violence. state or local governments that release private gun owner information will be penalized 5% of their federal program funding. this includes the release of private information on individuals 0 who have licenses to purchase or who possess or who carry firearms. the funding that's withheld will then be redistributed to the states that are in compliance. this amendment will ensure that gun owners across the nation do not have their private gun owner information publicly released. thank you, mr. president. and i urge all my colleagues to support the amendment. mr. leahy: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from vermont. mr. leahy: this is a case of washington being big brother and telling each one of the states whether it's wyoming, vermont, or connecticut here's what you have to do. we have no idea

, you use a mass shooting to talk about gun safety laws. that's the no-no. that's exploitation. here we can talk about maybe changes to the fbi right away. maybe we should, of course. we can talk about stopping immigration reform. it is really remarkable. and now do you have this growing course of conservatives saying let's load this down. leadership however, is hanging on. boehner yesterday on fox news said it may slow down by a couple of days but immigration reform is something we have to do because they know if they don't do it, they're in trouble demographically. they're going to keep this train rology but you do have those conservatives using it as an opportunity. >> bill: they have a lot of support around the country and the talk radio hosts around the country. they derailed it before. they might be able to do it again. igor volsky here, managing editor of think progress talking about the issues of the day with you. 1-866-55-press. join the conversation. we'll be right back. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >> watch the show. >> only on current tv. you know who is comi
under u.s. law. the united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions and it is important to remember that since 9/11, we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> nbc news justice correspondent pete williams is live with us right now. i know you've been reviewing these charges. what's the latest on what you've uncovered? >> it is a fairly interesting sequence of things that the government cites here as evidence. first of all they say that there was a surveillance tape that shows what apparently is the second suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, the man in the hospital, placing the bomb at the second bombing. this is unrelated picture to what i'm talking about now. but this is the person we're talking about. but the surveillance tape was taken at the scene of the second bombing. you may recall that there was a restaurant there called the foreign restaurant. they say a surveillance camera there shows him walking up to the restaurant with his backpack on. that he takes a cell phone off, seems to be using it for a while, then seems to be

it into law. that undertaking and many others, john berry made a real difference of the more than 62,000 federal workers and everyone else who called my district home. just as we look to our federal workers to watch out for us, our federal workers look to john to watch out for them, to make sure they have a safe work environment, that their paychecks will arrive on time and the benefits they earn are the ones they receive. under president clinton, john served as deputy assistant secretary and acting assistant secretary for law enforcement at the treasury department. overseeing the united states secret service and the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms. and he later moved to the interior department where he was assistant secretary for policy, management and budget, essentially the manager of the department of interior. before coming to the office of personnel management, john spent nearly a decade working on conservation as director of the fish and wildlife foundation, and then arguably the job he perhaps has enjoyed most, he became director of the national zoo. at the national z

. there's a lot going on today. first, the latest out of boston. federal law enforcement officials say the bombs that killed three people and wounded at least 176 17 critically, at the finish line of monday's marathon were explosives made from pressure cookers filled with metal and ball bearings and carried in backpacks. the fbi and homeland security are circulating photos of the device remains to figure out where the components came from. no word yet on what may have triggered those blasts. and so far no clue as to who's responsible or why. security has been high at the funeral of margaret thatcher. the former british prime minister funeral being held today at st. paul's cathedral in london. more than 2,000 mourners representing at least 170 countries turned out to pay respects to before britain's first female prime minister known as the iron lady. queen elizabeth and her husband prince phillip attended along with henry kissinger dick cheney and former house speaker newt gingrich. thatcher suffered a stroke on april 8th and died at the age of 87. she will be cremated and buried privat
found two unexploded bombs. this morning a senior law enforcement official says there were no unexploded devices, just the two that went off. several officials say the bombs that went off included shrapnels to multiply the injuries, bebes and ball bearings. investigators are investigating video to see if they can see individuals placing the packages. there is a video from the back carrying two backpacks but it's too soon to know whether that had anything to do with the attack. authorities say there is no suspect in custody but they did talk last night to a 20-year-old saudi man here on a currently active student visa. he had burns and questioned for hours and it's his home that was searched in the boston suburb of revere. they carried away some materials for examination but one official said it's too certain to know one or the other about him, that he might have been an innocent bystander. >> let's get to michael lighter, nbc news terrorism expert. good morning to you. the key question everyone is waking up with is what is your gut? does this bear the hallmarks of some domestic terrorism
you been hearing, susan? >> reporter: michael a federal law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation is telling us that investigators now believe that one of the bombs appears to have been placed inside a metal pressure cooker that was hidden inside a backpack. so inside a metal pressure cooker, hidden inside a backpack. this, again, has to do with what at least one of the bombs that was found. you'll remember that we have been reporting that law enforcement authorities had issued a bulletin to other investigators to be on the lookout for someone who might have been carrying a black backpack in the area of the explosions right before they occurred. so this might go hand in hand with that. we also heard governor deval patrick of massachusetts announce not long ago that there were two bombs and two bombs only. he went on to say that another device that had been found or a suspicious package, rather, that had been found, was blown up as a precautionary measure. so he said they're working with two bombs. we don't have information at this time any or details about the
the decision and, of course, i'm not second-guessing anybody. i did talk to a law enforcement officer over the weekend who, first of all, said, you know, it would have been much better for us all if this had been plotted out of a cave in afghanistan instead of, you know, an apartment in cambridge. >> one among us. >> yeah, one among us. but also he was saying not so sure about them shutting down the entire city and the message that that sends. you talk about copycats. the copycat said if i do something particularly heinous, i can hold an entire city hostage. >> one of the purposes of terrorists is to disrupt and forcing a city shut down and the rest, she used that end in addition to killing and injurying that you do. one of the reasons -- i don't want to second-guess the tactical decision to lock down boston. but i don't think this is something that if you will a scaleable or sustainable. >> no, we can't do this. >> imagine these guys hadn't been captured and all that. >> after what happened to the boston marathon in an internationally visible way. we were covering this all morning long. i
that we all have given through congress. i don't know what the law is spent we will make a request on that and appreciate your follow up on it. we go now to karen bass of california. >> thank you, mr. chair. i want to congratulate secretary kerry on your appointment, and also join my colleagues in expressing my condolences. >> thank you. >> i look forward to working with you, and especially working with the committed men and women at the state department. i have to tell you that i've really enjoyed working directly with the state department and i'm honored to have an excellent pearson fell in my office who i am looking forward to continuing to work with me. as the ranking member of the african subcommittee all wanted to share with you several priority issues i hope you will consider. first of all come u.s.-africa trade relations. number two, the importance of development assistance programs, including global hiv/aids funding through pepfar. number three, support for peacekeeping operations. as you know the u.n. is considering establishing a peacekeeping force and mali and there's a
is a brilliant law enforcement person but i always think the law enforcement person should be the head of the enforcement digs not a person at the top of the sec which sets a broader agenda which regulation is big thing that is unw problems she will face. let's hope she brings its up but i'm doubtful and this stuff will keep going on. lori: this happen so fast, in the blink of an eye and then recouped it. would this happen in the open outcry system? >> probably not they would say don't throw the baby out with the bath water. there is efficiencies when you hit a button to bypass a human being. i will tell you someone coming on here talking about jon corzine is not talking about jon corzine now which is little strange. melissa: that is the main story. you came here to talk about that. >> i'm just saying, specialists did prevent the wild volatility and that was a good thing. here is what we know about corzine if few minutes we have, i will throw this out there, he is not yet, he has been sued by louie freed, the bankruptcy trustee. i believe negligence was the word that freed threw around
. -i guess i get it from both sides. we are very committed to the rule of law where immigration is concerned. are we counting border control turnarounds as part of the deportations rather than that criminal on the interior? border control pieces, the turnarounds as part of the deportation? >> if there is a removal. into the statistics. the plain fact of the matter is .ce has been extremely active i will tell you, one representative miller talked about this window of time and immigration, this is the window of time. we need to be looking at our worksite enforcement. that is a real driver of immigration. we need more tools. the statutes governing how you issecute someone continually incredible. we need to unclog the visa process. i'm familiar with cases in my hometown and outside my hometown or criminal aliens have been caught and turned over by local police. omg au or grlt charges and they are let go. r edo not know who they were who has that record that we have will be a priority l. >> i got another case recently. or thiss a warrant man's arrest in new york city. he was let go.
guard law enforcement detachments so in fact we can change operational control to a coast guard commander when we detect a drug smuggler as use that as a coast guard cutter because we have our people embarked on the navy ships. the loss of the ships in the caribbean ultimately will result in more drugs in a are making it through. i know, talking to joint interagency task force south, because we have a good coast guard representation. in fact, its director is a coast guard admiral, right now we are only intercepting about 1/3 of the tracks we are aware of in people smuggling drugs towards central america. last year, we interdicted 107 metric tons. that's 107 metric tons of pure cocaine that didn't make it into south -- into central america to make its way across our borders. by comparison, all the law enforcement agencies in the 48 states only interdicted only 40 metric tons of cocaine. and that's after its broken down as well. so more drugs and we'll have fewer assets that we can redivert to other missions like migrant interdiction and other coast guard activities in those areas
law enforcement all appealing to the public, asking for any amateur video and photographic evidence that can aid in what now has become a massive investigation. >> we are in the process of securing and processing the most complex crime scene that we've dealt with in the history of our department. we are doing that under the direction of the fbi and in partnership with the atf. jenna: not insignificant that he says that the most complex investigation in their department's history. despite a variety of different reports that you've all heard over the last 24, nearly 24 hours, the commissioner is making it very clear that right now no one is in custody in connection with these attacks. >> we still do not know who did this or why, and people shouldn't skwrupl top conclusions before -- jump to conclusions before we have all the facts you about. make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. and we will find out who did this. we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. jon: president obama on the air just
're sharing it with other law enforcement agencies, just trying to see if anybody knows this person and there is to doubt a strategy to that. but they don't want to get the information or any pictures out of the public yesterday to perhaps clue this person in on where they're at in the investigation. so we can't independently verify any of those other pictures that are floating out there and i can tell you that the authorities have not officially released any pictures. >> has there been a sense of frustration from the authorities, scott, because of all of the, you know, head fakes and misinformation that has gotten out, some of the early stuff that's been out, also because of potential media that's made it easy to make these pictures go around very quickly. >> well, i'm sure there's a great deal of frustration. we've with he got the fbi's statement that came midafternoon yesterday after the false reports of an arrest. that was pretty strongly worded that said that basically admonished the media to vet your information better. that said that the reports of an arrest were erroneous an
and federal law enforcement agencies for their quick response to yesterday's tragic events and also express our gratitude to the members of the national guard supporting the marathon, among the first on the scene. i'm mindful that many members of the military community had traveled to boston to participate in this race and our thoughts are with all of them today. the department of defense is prepared to respond quickly to any response for additional support from domestic law enforcement agencies. i will continue to consult closely with d.o.d. senior leaders on how we can best support the government's response and investigation. and chairman dempsey may have additional comments regarding this event as well. mr. chairman, i will now turn to my opening statement for this hearing. this year's 2014 budget request for the department of defense is -- as congressman lowey noted, a budget that was put together over many months. an enterprise as large as the department of defense, $600 billion is not collaborated with or on or numbers or budgets instructed in a manner of two or three months. and as w
to law enforcement in the coming hours, days and weeks. >> if you see something, say something, and that's what they're counting on, but the investigation obviously is just beginning here, and so much now. >> much more ahead on "nbc nightly news". -- >> bring out the best in others, the ones they seek to harm. >> right, there's still discussion obviously whether this was international terrorism or domestic terrorism. do you have a feeling on that? >> i this i this is one of those things you have to wait to play out. often there is a claim of responsibility quickly which we haven't seen yet. that could mean nothing. they say in those bombs they had bebes and ball bearings and i guess they asked one of the terrorism experts. as lester just the fbi special agent in charge they're processing live digital evidence right now. that is a priority. why the officials who spoke at that press conference, already they received tips, they're getting an awful lot of feedback from the general public as to what may have happened behind us yesterday afternoon. lester, we arrived here in the early evening
, law enforcement officials are keeping a very close eye on the internet, specifically sites that show people how to make destructive devices. nbc's senior investigative correspondent lisa myers has that part of the story, good morning. >> matt, good morning to you. regardless of who committed this atrocity it's clear these days that anyone with a grievance and the will can learn how to become a terrorist simply by going online. now authorities are trying to use some of these sites to their advantage. the latest evidence bomb makers have taken their teachings to the web this online al qaeda publication posted last month, a guide to carrying out terror attacks including detailed illustrated recipes for pressure cooker bombs, the kind investigators say was used in boston. >> the internet has brought terrorism to the web. it's made it go viral. anybody can look online and find out how to make a bomb. it is a frightening development. >> a similar terrorist manual, how to make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom, was posted three years ago. prosecutors say it was used by this former muslim-am
for intelligence, not law enforcement purposes. this is highly controversial and could affect the government's case. but at some point in that interrogation which only lasted a few hours, which apparently consisted of him writing answers because he can't speak due to the injury to his throat. at some point in that interrogation, agents, professional interrogators decided we're not going to get anywhere or we've already learned everything we can learn from him. they also have on their shoulder, breathing down their neck, so to speak, a federal rule of procedure which requires he be charged with something within 48 hours. otherwise they have to let him go. they did charge him with this complaint filed by an f.b.i. agent who basically wrote a ten-page affidavit summarizing the evidence that they have against him. this f.b.i. agent personally viewed the tapes, looked at the evidence, -- >>gretchen: basically he's charged with having a weapon of mass destruction and killing people. but there was so much controversy in the last couple of days about whether or not he should be an enemy combatant. senator

"still the best hope" is the name of his recent best seller. louis from florida, you're on the air. you're talking with dennis prager. >> caller: i'd like to ask mr. prayinger and his ilk what he just said about truth, why should people believe the bible when that's the biggest novel ever written? who believes the earth is 5,000 years old? how can you follow a book that tells you the world is 5,000 years old and hisclass commentary about the christian schools and the seminary, how does he say something like that and he wants to be honest? i know this man is a right winger, and he wouldn't fifth credit to anybody, but my main question is,
or what the hell is going on there? >> yeah. it really is disturbing just the timing of it. so far, law enforcement officials don't seem to think that there is a connection here apparently this was mailed sort of snail mail so it would have been mailed before the bombs. but there is not a disconcerting answer -- risin has been used many years by the russians, for example, to assassinate opponents. the get news here is that the screening system works and was identified. >> bill: 20 minutes after the hour now, brian bender is with us a national securitier for the boston globe. follow him @boston.com. now is the time to get your questions and comments in or give us a call at 866-55-press. what does all of this mean? and does it mean that we ought to think about maybe avoiding big public event did like this? we don't want to live in fear. 866-55-press. >> heard around the country, and seen on current tv, this is "the bill press show."

in the boston bombing. that proved to be erroneous. law enforcement pouring cold water on the story and the market is bouncing around. to what extent is the market being affected by the terror news? >> hi, david, hi, lori. the real terror news is not after effecting market. we had effect monday late in the day after the bomb but the markets bounced back. with ricin and catching of the suspect really had no effect. the market has stayed pretty stoic. it is lower and trying to work its way lower and we're a at a key level. 1550 is the key level. the cash held. if we break we'll go a lot lower. lori: todd, don't you think this market is looking for an excuse to sell off? we've been whipsawed the last three trading sessions with pretty wide swings here. thanks for mentioning the technical level to watch for, s&p 500 the we're in earnings season. could this be a shoe that causes inflection? >> the market certainly is searching for some kind of fundamental news bomb, that will cause some fear and force this market down. while nobody is watching the financials have been really struggling t
shamelessly cynical in writing laws and bending rules to favor the one percent. and that includes the tax code. so, on monday, when you send in your tax returns, think about this. corporate profits are at record highs. but have those companies invested that in new jobs? no. did they at least give their workers a bump in pay? hardly. surely they shelled out a little more in taxes to help refurbish the social structure, highways, bridges, schools, libraries, parks, where they do business! guess again. corporations are sitting on $1.7 trillion of cash. look at this report just published by pirg. the public interest research group, on how average citizens and small businesses have to make up the $90 billion giant companies save by shifting profits toffshore x havens. among the 83 publicly traded corporations named, pfizer, which for the past five years reported no taxable income in the us, even as it made 40% of its sales here. microsoft, which avoided $4.5 billion in taxes over three years by shifting its income to puerto rico. citigroup, which maintains 20 subsidiaries in tax havens and has over
